Beasts of 2005, the micro edition*

Signs of the Times: nipply Paris and weird military video games

Not "best," but "beast."

11 Beasts of 2005 in no particular order:
George Bush, et al
the term "nip slip"
Tom Cruise
Paris Hilton, et al
Military themed Video Games
Jeremy Piven
Miss Seventeen
Michael Brown
Bratz babies
Bonus! the rash that won't go away: weight-loss narratives (i.e. the biggest loser and celebrity fit club)

*this list is by no means comprehensive. Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments.

I would go further to say that it's not just the term "nip slip" that deserves to be banished, but the whole idea all together. Why do people care about seeing a sliver of somebody's nipple hanging out of a dress? As if there were no porn on the internet to look at if you really wanted to see some breasts. I don't get it. And yet, just as an ugly outfit or a bad pair of sunglasses, it's treated like a news story. So boring.

anal bleaching/shaving of privates
"Brangelina" (sounds like a rash)
Laguna Beach

How weird, I was totally going to mention anal bleaching -- but I'm not sure if it's really the bleaching that bothers me or that gross plastic surgery victim porn star on E! who had the procedure done on TV. I think I find her more disgusting than a bleached asshole.

I'd like to add intelligent design.

The "war on Christmas" of course. Don't know why it took me so long to come up with it.
